Characterising Concurrent Tests Based on Message Sequence Chart Requirements

Mitchell, Bill (2001) Characterising Concurrent Tests Based on Message Sequence Chart Requirements Simulation Series, Society for Computer Simulation, 33, (3), pp. 135-140.

Record type: Article


MSC-s specifying system requirements can be used to generate test scripts in languages such as TTCN. In 1996 TTCN was extended in order to describe concurrent test scripts. We give a characterisation of which concurrent tests can be executed by parallel test components (PTC-s) acting in concert. We also characterise when the PTC-s give the correct test result verdict.
